Jake needs a wife and Sue needs to save her family farm. He's a snob and a she's a tomboy. Both quickly discover how much they have in common. An Inconvenient Marriage is filled with humor and playful banter. It will leave you with a smile.

This book was so much fun to read and even though it took me a while to start(as I had other books to read) I could not put it down once I started.

I am so very glad that I listened to a recommendation about this book as it didn't disappoint!! There is so much humour in this book. I loved the alternating male and female P.O.V.

I have to read the other books centering around this group of people. I'm now hooked on Ruth Ann Nordin :-) She has single handedly brought me back into the romance(with no paranormal in sight)genre!!

I enjoy reading books by Ruth Ann Nordin. She has a great sense of humor and an easy writing style. I've read the other reviews and they covered it beautifully. I was looking for a certain romance style, and I really found it in Ruth's books. I've read them all, and I'm waiting, impatiently, for more!

Review by: Jutzie on May 12, 2011 :
I enjoy all of Ruth's books. I read this as the historical but Ruth has just rewrote it as a contemporary book.

Sue Lewis comes into the bank each day and nags them to help her family save their farm instead of having it repossessed. Jake Mitchell, a wealthy bachelor, is being driven nuts by this nagging woman. Although he does want to help her but the son of the banker would rather get the property and make more money.

Jake wants to start his own bank as he knows when George takes over the bank after his father, Conrad, retires it won't be a good thing.

Jake's dad left his mom and him when he was 10. After his mothers death Jake gained much wealth. Now he is told that his father has died and left even more money but Jake must marry and stay married for 6 months before receiving the money.

He decides that he can marry Sue and give her the money to pay off the debt for the family farm. The marry as a convenience only and plan on an annulment on May 21st, six months later.

Jake finds out there is much more to Sue then the nagging woman he first assumed her to be.

Review by: Donna McDonald on May 10, 2011 :
I am not normally a fan of stories with historical settings, but was so caught up in these characters that I forgot and had to have the whole book. Nordin does a wonderful job making you care about what happens to both the hero and heroine. This author definitely leaves you wanting more after the book is done.

I just finished this book and absolutely loved it. The characters were fresh and the story captivating. This one is a real page-turner! The Lewis family is a hoot!

Review by: Patti on July 06, 2010 :
A charming book with likable characters. While the story takes place in 1899, I found the modern language to be a little offputting, but overall I enjoyed An Inconvenient Marriage enough to read the entire thing in one evening, even though it's not a type of book I usually read. I'm glad the characters got their happy ending :)
